I too have a serious issue with anxiety which seems out of control at times. Had this for nearly all of my adult life. It effects me in my job though not enough to cause me to lose the job, but I literally become an idiot at times and it's very embarrassing and humiliating.
I am seeing a therapist however and have my next appointment tomorrow morning.
Might seem like a silly question, but should I be on a medication? I will talk with my therapist about this.
